KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Springfield

  • Renting a car on a Springfield trip is the best decision you can make. This is because, with a rental car, you can explore the city and its surroundings without limitations. You can visit major historical sites such as Lincoln Home National Historic, Old Stae Capitol, and Lincoln Monument Association. Dana Thomas House is 150 miles from the city center and you can easily get there with a Springfield car rental hassle-free.
  • At Dulles International Airport, you can easily rent a car when you land or rent online and pick it up when you land. There are multiple car rentals in Springfield with booths at IAD that you can opt for. However, some companies do not have counters at the airport. These agencies usually offer a free shuttle service to the pick-up location. Other companies like Avis, Budget and Enterprise are also present at the airport.
  • Driving in Springfield is relatively easy because the roads are well maintained. However, you must be careful at all times. Look out for passengers and cyclists while driving at night and in the city.  When driving downtown, you need to be careful. Most streets downtown are one-way and often change the turning points; therefore, you need your Springfield car rental customized with GPS system navigation for a smooth drive.
  • Although driving in Springfield is easy, driving during rush hour can be tiresome and annoying. This is because most of the roads are usually crowded, making it difficult to go through. The rush hour starts from 6 am to 9:30 am and later in the evening from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm. The congestion is brought about by the high number of commuters, service buses and other vehicles heading in the same direction simultaneously. Avoid driving to the city center at this time and near the schools during morning drop-offs and pick-ups. You should be careful for you not to hit the students.

This has become my preferred off airport location to rent. Service has always been quick and the employees are always attentive to customers coming in, who has been helped and who is waiting. Have received a ride home without complaint. Folks get upset when their model isn't available or walk ins are turned away but this is the business. Make a reservation and you're in good hands.

The car type.

Cons:

Having a vehicle where I was sent to pick up, rather then showing up there and being sent to another because they didn’t have any atm. Not being overcharged 100$ when my pick up was supposed to be 107$ and was charged 200$. The vehicle was not clean inside or out trash and weed bags, giving the car a nasty weed smell. The gas tank was 3/4 full I returned it full. Over just not a good rent. I would like to be contacted about getting a refund or at least the amount I overpaid. I have pictures of what I was supposed to pay and bank statements of what I over paid.

Tried a local pick-up/drop-off at nearby hotel instead of airport. this turned out to be convenient and straight forward. Given a recent negative rental experience with another company, the terms and ease of doing business was appreciated. The mini-van we rented was in good condition and fit our 6 plus luggage.
